Highlights from the Forthcoming Auction of Antiques & Fine Art





Fellows' upcoming auction of Antiques & Fine Art on Tuesday 13th December will contain some exceptional items from the 20th century


Among these is a selection of paintings by Robert Lenkiewicz and Howard Morgan. Since 1986, Howard Morgan has been a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and his success in the field is reflected by the numerous Royal commissions he has received.


His most notable sitters include the Queen, the Queen of The Netherlands and Prince Michael of Kent. A particularly striking portrait of Dame Antoinette Sibley is another one of his highlights which, along with several others, is on permanent display at the National Portrait Gallery. Numerous other exhibitions have also been held at galleries including Anthony Mould, Claridges, Agnew’s, Cadogan Contemporary Watercolours and The Eaton Gallery.


Morgan was well known for his paintings of landscapes and religious pictures, but he is perhaps more widely recognised for his conversation pictures which are often profoundly disturbing and tantalizingly indecipherable. His works in oils and watercolours have been sold at several auctions with prices ranging from a few hundred pounds to £15,000.


Fellows are pleased to be able to offer a select group of these works directly from the studio of the artist, which not only offers the purchaser the reassurance of unbroken provenance, but allows the opportunity to purchase works normally seen only in galleries. There is of course, the bonus that since these works have never been sold, they do not attract the additional 4% Artist’s Resale Rights usually payable on works sold at auction by living artists.
